Guided Walking Tour of Cartagena

246 reviews | 1,732 travellers
Our guide made a great effort to show us part of the architecture of Cartagena despite not being able to enter it because of the processions. We miss strolling quietly through the city. Maybe we picked a bad day.

Guided Tour of Cartagena

We'll start our guided tour of Cartagena at the tourist information point on Calle Real. From there we'll go to the stairs to the walls, where there is a statue of Charles III of Spain. Do you know the link between this Spanish monarch and the region of Murcia?

Just a few steps away we'll set foot in the Plaza de los Héroes de Cavite square, named after the heroes of the Battle of Cavite in the Spanish-American War in 1898. We'll stop at the monument that pays tribute to the victims of said battle and throughout the tour, we'll discover how this conflict, in Philippine waters, had a series of historical consequences on the city.

We'll continue our guided walking tour past the Naval Museum of Cartagena, where we'll stop outside to discover the history of Isaac Peral: the sailer and soldier from Cartagena that came up with the prototype of the first known submarine. Our next stop will be at the Casa del Rey, a historical barrack that housed the Army of Flanders before they left for the Low Countries along the so-called Spanish Road.

Continuing through the old town of Cartagena we'll reach the Cerro del Molinete Archeological Park, where the ruins help us to better understand the Carthaginian and Roman past of the city. Our tour will continue to the Roman Theatre of Cartagena, where we'll visit the ruins of the Byzantine Walls (closed on Mondays).

From the walls, we'll head to the Cornisa Archeological Park; the perfect spot to enjoy excellent views of the Castillo de la Concepción castle. We'll then cross the famous Cuatro Santos street and finish our tour outside the Casa del Niño; by now you'll be experts on the city!


The underground passages of the Byzantine Walls are currently closed due to restoration work, meaning we'll only see them from outside.
